I watched Sony's 3D TV and was not so interested in the CGI movies with very exaggerated 3D and things flying at me but I was very impressed with a live action soccer game! It really brought it to life!

I definitely agree with Robin's comments regarding screen size, I felt the urge to get closer for the same reasons as him

I 100% agree with Erik's comments about games, I will be camping out all night the day before Gran Turismo 3D-VR is released

Dude 3d sucks BIG TIME!!! I cant stand it anymore, especially with the talk of 3d games; I love games and will sometimes play for 6 or 7 hours at a time i don't wanna wear some uncomfortable glasses for that long.
My personal opinion is that they are just putting the effect on movies that were meant to be 2d, i saw Avatar in 3d and nothing jumped out at me it was completely useless to me.

My idea for games instead of 3d is just have a monitor that curves around your head, i know that using mutiple monitors gives you the same effect but it bothers me to have the space between sets.

Highly Entertaining for Me

When they showed 3-D movies in theatres, I and almost everyone else was quite impressed and we even enjoyed what some might have considered to be otherwise bad movies. But, I recall that a couple of people were disoriented by the effect, to the point of nausea and barfing. Be careful about who's sitting behind you, when you watch them.

Ultra High-definition video should be implemented to go along with 3-D and why not include the Russian invention of Smell-O-Vision (a scent generator with its own coding section). An odor sensor could be built into the mikes and have a stereo capability. Like the bifurcated tongues of snakes, this could allow directional location of the scent origins by the viewers (sniffers, actually). Video jocks with B.O. might have a problem.

I don't think 3D TV will take off, sure some theater productions will have well done 3D effects, but there are too many variables for illness (both long and short term). I enjoyed avatar but came out a bit wobbly and could say that 2.5 hours of it was definitely pushing the breaking point - so I know I won't buy one, and likely never make a 3D film (even though I could).

For sure 3D will be very entertaining and very popular, but only after they get rid of the glasses
I love this place!
